About us

Stim Factory is a 'by us, for us' organization that provides services & products to the disability, autistic, and chronic illness spaces. We specialize in media, programs and services for adults due to lack of depth within the market, but we do also offer limited services for children as well. We aim to bridge the gap and empower those within these spaces.

Living Wages​

 

Beginning as a socioeconomic algorithm to help empower the working poor & the homeless, the Turner Method for Living Wages is an independent calculator that we choose to apply to help make sure we are all on an equal playing field.

You are NOT a plot on an actuary table. No one understands that better than us. That's why we use this algorithm to find how much you should make here, working with us as an employee.

On October 1, 2020, we will launch our algorithm, free-to-use on our page. Compare our calculator to MIT's living wage table, and you'll find ours more agreeable.

 

**NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, we are not able to hire anyone now. Any current employment opportunities will be posted on our 'Careers' page.**

Who We Are

No BS; only solutions.  By Us, For Us.  Sua Sponte.

What is Sua Sponte?

 

It's Latin for "of our own accord". We are sick and tired (some of us literally) of not having accessible work with useful accommodations or understanding leadership, suffering on a wage that can't sustain us in our advanced needs.

 

​ We basically said "screw this", and fixed the problem ourselves.

Joie Thompson,

Founder/CEO

Joie has always been controversial.  However, that doesn't mean that he doesn't care.  When he created this organization, it was because the special needs community needed more robust adult services, along with accessible careers that pay a living wage.

Hey everyone! I’m Merissa, and I’m the shyest people-person you’ll ever meet. No, seriously. Anyway, when I’m not wrangling people to do the right thing - a regular Jiminy Cricket - I’m playing games and spending way too much time writing. I’m hoping to bring a strong base of support and understanding to our endeavors, while making sure we’re respecting everyone. I’m a member of the LGBT community, and was denied an ADHD diagnosis as a kid because of my grades, so I know what it’s like to not have the support you need and have to struggle to still meet the expectations of those around you. I want to see people flourish, and hope that we can give people the tools they need to move forward in their lives.
